The Restaurant

J.R. Schoenfeld’s most recent restaurant located in the Copperleaf Boutique Hotel in Appleton WI.  Rye offers a refined comfort food menu served in a stylish urban / rustic setting.  We serve breakfast every day of the week and lunch and dinner Monday thru Saturday.

The Food

Fresh, local and organic whenever possible!  We carry our values into each location and train the staff to never cut any corner. Everything that comes out of our kitchen is made from scratch, from our dressings to our ice cream.  Vegetables and fruits are hand picked from our very own garden located in Suamico.  We make our own sausages.  We bake our own bread. Our menu changes daily to reflect the season and mood of our chef.

The Drinks

Relax with an artisan cocktail created with homemade simple syrups, enjoy a glass of wine, or refresh your palate with local beer in our lounge.  We offer a careful selection of seasonal drinks that pair with our menu to enhance your experience at Rye.

The Chef

Rye brings new talent to the area.  Nick Morse is our Head Chef.  Nick’s passion for food blossomed several years ago.  JR began taking Nick to work with him when Nick was 14 years old.  He washed dishes, prepped food items, plated desserts and made pizzas.  Since then, he has spent time as a Kitchen Manager, Line cook in Door County, Sous Chef at Chives Restaurant for 5 years and wanting to expand his knowledge of food, took a seasonal position for the summers of 2011 and 2012 at the Harbor View Hotel & Resort on Martha’s Vineyard in Edgartown, Massachusetts.

Nick returned to Green Bay and opened Bleu Restaurant in DePere.  In early 2015, he made the transition to Head Chef at Rye bringing with him his wife, Charlotte, who is our Event Planner.
